John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 70



Verses 1-5

This Ps. is simply a repetition of Psalms 40:13-17, with a few variations. 'Lord' (Jehovah) is changed, into 'God' (Elohim) except in Psalms 70:1; On the other hand, 'Elohim' is changed into 'Jehovah' in Psalms 70:5. By a change of one letter in the Hebrew 'turned back' is substituted for 'desolate' in Psalms 70:3, and 'make haste unto me' appears instead of 'thinketh upon me' in Psalms 70:5. The five vv. composing the Ps. constitute a cry to God for help and deliverance.

Title: see on Psalms 38.
